WAYNESBORO, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall men's golf team moved up two spots in the team standings during the second and final round of the Mason-Dixon College Classic on Sunday. That seven shot improvement had the Diplomats finish in a tie for second with McDaniel after the two-day event.
Gettysburg won the team title with a score of 589 over the 36-hole event. The Diplomats were four shots off that pace after firing a 293 on Sunday, just two shots off the best team score of the day which was recorded by Drew.
Chris Dorey went two-under during the second round of the event to finish as the runner-up in the individual standings. He finished at even par for the tournament, three shots off the pace of Ryan McGarry who took home medalist honors for McDaniel.
Shane Lawler also cut two strokes off his Saturday score, shooting a 74 on Sunday to finish the tournament at six-over. That cumulative score tied Jack Cooley who posted a round of 75 on both days. Lawler's round of 74 matched Jas Fuhrer's card as Fuhrer finished his two rounds at seven over. Chris Magliocco finished at 10-over for the tournament following a round of 79 on Sunday.
The Diplomats finished the tournament tied for team lead in both par-3 (+7) and par-5 (-4) scoring. Cooley went two-under on par-3 holes this weekend and was fourth in the field in total birdies (7). Dorey led F&M in par-5 scoring (-1).
Three tournaments remain on the Diplomats' fall schedule before they break from competition for the fall semester and resume their competition schedule in the spring. The next of those events will be the Oglethorpe Royal Lakes Invitational in Georgia from Monday, October 10 throughout Tuesday, October 11.
